Additive Manufacturing Materials Chief Engineer at Eaton
Power management technologies provider Eaton is seeking an Additive Manufacturing Materials Chief Engineer to join its Aerospace Group in either Euclid, Ohio or North Charleston, South Carolina. The successful candidate will be responsible for leading the division’s metal 3D printing material characterization efforts, and identifying time and cost efficiency opportunities within its workflow.
Using their in-depth understanding of alloy-based additive manufacturing processes, Eaton’s new Chief Engineer will also be expected to guide the rest of its technical team, as well as providing technical consulting to engineers at client organizations, and reviewing the specs of any materials tested to ensure their suitability for use in production.
Eaton has specified that applicants should have an MS in Engineering, Material Science or Metallurgy, plus a minimum of ten years’ engineering experience, with at least three of these being in 3D printing. The company also says that expertise in material science or additive manufacturing processes is considered advantageous for the role, as is being a team player and someone that’s capable of coaching.
Although Eaton hasn’t provided a salary for the position, it has offered to provide relocation assistance to the successful candidate should this be required. More information about the role of Additive Manufacturing Materials Chief Engineer at Eaton can be found here.
Lithoz’s ‘XL Hub’ enters production
Ceramic 3D printing specialist Lithoz has announced the dispatch of the first order from its new production facility in Vienna, Austria. The firm’s second site in the city and fourth overall, features a ‘central warehouse’ that’s been built to not only expand on its raw material storage capacity, but improve the scalability of its production workflow.
This new ‘XL Hub’ is also fitted with an ISO 8 cleanroom-level production environment and a central quality assurance lab, to ensure the consistent application of review steps at each stage of its manufacturing process, as well as a centralized logistics hub, which Lithoz says will be “a key success factor” in realizing its growth strategy moving forwards.
“During the planning and implementation of this new production site, we focused on sustainability, scalability and reliability,” explains Dr. Daniel Bomze, leader of the Lithoz project. “We are ready and extremely well-prepared for meeting the fast-growing demand of our customers.”
Apis Cor opens first US showroom
US construction firm Apis Cor has opened what’s being marketed as the ‘world’s first showroom for 3D printed homes.’ Located in the Avenue Viera shopping district, the studio is said to house both fabricated wall samples and the firm’s ‘Frank’ autonomous house-building robot, offering visitors a unique chance to view the technology up-close and personal.
Back in 2017, the company’s technologies were used to 3D print a Russian home inside of 24 hours, with the machinery’s ability to operate at temperatures down to -35°C proving ideal for building during the country’s winter months. More recently, Apis Cor has unveiled plans to use Frank to construct a home on the US’ Space Coast, which will reportedly be listed on the nation’s housing market for $750,000.
Nexa3D makes two senior appointments
High-speed resin 3D printer manufacturer Nexa3D has announced two new appointments to its senior leadership team. In the first of these hires, Saildrone’s ex-VP of Finance and Operations Sven Jensen has joined the firm as its new CFO, a move that sees him take the reins from Brooke Davis, who has departed to become CFO of Quickparts.
Jensen brings a wealth of experience to the role, as at Saildrone, he was responsible for overseeing its finances, operations, HR and facilities functions, and he has also held senior positions at the likes of Bidzy, reMatch Sports, and Blum Capital Partners.
Nexa3D’s other headline appointment is Kristin Mulherin, who joins as GM of its new Powder Products business unit. In this role, which she’s set to carry out alongside her responsibilities as President of Women in 3D Printing, Mulherin will leverage the knowledge gained from her previous go-to-market leadership roles at HP and Dyndrite, to lead the firm’s powder offering ahead of its QLS 350 3D printer launch.
“Kristin, who needs no introduction in our industry, is uniquely-qualified to propel us forward as we ready the QLS 350 for the market,” said Nexa3D CEO Avi Reichental. “We are all humbled and honored that Kristin is trusting us with the next chapter of her professional journey, and applaud her many accomplishments at Women in 3D Printing and throughout our dynamic additive manufacturing industry.”
Markforged hires marketing guru as CMO
Industrial-grade 3D printer manufacturer Markforged has hired experienced marketing guru Andrew Hally in a newly-created position as its CMO. Working from the company’s global Watertown HQ, Hally will now oversee its entire marketing operation, from strategy and brand positioning to demand generation, effectively covering all aspects of its product and corporate marketing and communications.
Using the extensive experience built up during his time in marketing leadership positions at Bynder, Allego, Cazena, Bullhorn, Unica and SensAble Technologies, Hally will also work cross-functionally across Markforged’s business to ensure that its marketing efforts are aligned in a way that helps realize its wider growth plans.
“We are excited to welcome Andrew to our team to help harness the excitement to deliver this message to all of our stakeholders,” said Terem. “As an innovative leader with experience leading marketing teams for high growth companies, Andrew will help us ensure Markforged, and The Digital Forge, are seen as a critical player and thought leader in building the future of distributed manufacturing.”
6K appoints ex-Allstate CEO to board
Specialist 3D printing material developer 6K has appointed the former CEO of the Allstate Corporation Edward Liddy to its board of directors. Given his prior experience on the boards of the 3M Company, Boeing, Abbott Laboratories and Goldman Sachs, Liddy is expected to be a strong strategic voice in the firm’s boardroom, helping identify opportunities within its operations, supply chains and investment plans.
“6K is collaborating with the top-tier players in both the battery and additive manufacturing markets to replace legacy technologies, and develop and produce performance materials sustainably,” said 6K’s CEO Dr. Aaron Bent. “Ed’s appointment to the board gives us a strategic viewpoint and can provide a unique insight to mergers and acquisitions, investment opportunities and commercial partnerships.”
“Ed Liddy brings a tremendous resume and expertise having led global organizations as a CEO and providing a strategic voice as a board member for some of the largest, most respected companies in the world.”
Riley joins Fabrisonic as new COO
Finishing this week’s update with Fabrisonic, the solid-state 3D printing specialist has unveiled Jason Riley as its new COO. After graduating from the Marine Corps University Expeditionary Warfare School, Riley began teaching a Ph.D. program at Fuller Theological Seminary, hence his new employer describes his route into 3D printing as “non-traditional” but also “diverse.”
From there, Riley helped get material science company Amorphology off the ground, where he led efforts to build out its 14,000 sq. ft R&D and manufacturing facility and was promoted to COO. Since leaving the start-up to join Fabrisonic, the former military man is said to be thriving in his new role, particularly the way that he’s ‘working on new projects and overcoming new challenges every week.’
“I enjoy working with highly-skilled, motivated team members, learning new things, and being a part of accomplishing challenging projects on a day-to-day basis. The team here at Fabrisonic is awesome,” said Riley. “Fabrisonic has an incredibly promising future in the advanced manufacturing ecosystem… we need more companies like this to advance our manufacturing capabilities here in the US.
